In preparation for the Monaco Optimist Academy, and keen for our young sailors to forge links with those from foreign clubs, the Yacht Club de Monaco launched the Mediterranean Monaco Optimist Academy in 2017. Combining a regatta and training, the concept allows coaches to go alongside during races to give advice and tips. An original format, it has attracted clubs from all over the world, with nearly a hundred young racers aged under 14.
The Beking bike race, which brings together all the cycling stars who reside in Monaco, returns to Monaco with its third edition this Sunday.

Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival 2023 continues with two concerts with Macy Gray – Leon Phal and STRESS KILLER on Saturday 25 November 2023, at 8 pm in Opéra de Monte-Carlo – Salle Garnier! Macy
Gray has established herself as one of contemporary soul’s leading figures, with her unique voice and diverse influences, most notably her idol Billie Holiday. Léon Phal is not one for precisely blackened scores, instead preferring the inspiration of the moment. The sort that comes when he sits in his studio, contemplating the mixers like an electro or hip-hop producer, surrounded by the core group of musicians who make up his quintet, all tuned to the same wavelength. Exactly the inspiration behind their last two albums, and Stress Killer.
And on Sunday “Le Son d’Alex” (The sound of Alex), a voyage through the soundtrack of your life you can take on Sunday 26 November 2023, at 6 pm, in Opéra de Monte-Carlo – Salle Garnier.
It’s also a sampler crammed with music and jokes to take you on a journey from prehistoric times to Gilbert Montagné, from Daft Punk to Booba, via Eagles, Ennio Morricone and Maître Gims.
A grand opera “Don Carlo” in five acts by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901), conducted by Massimo Zanetti, and directed for the stage by Davide Livermore invites you on Sunday 26 November 2023, at 3 pm, in the Grimaldi Forum Monaco.
Libretto by Camille Du Locle and Joseph Méry, is based on the tragic poem Don Carlos, Infant von Spanien (1787) by Friedrich von Schiller.
In the theater there is a bittersweet comedy “To a tango tune” on stage of the Theatre des Muses on Thursday 23 November, Friday 24 and Saturday 25 at 8:00 p.m., Sunday November 26 at 4:30 p.m.
A true paradox between two moments in the life of a father and a son. Like most young fathers, Pierre spends his time working hard in the restaurant he created, driven by the sole desire to make his family happy.
Max, his father, an eternal young man for whom life seems light, enjoys his retirement with his friends and the memory of his deceased wife. At first glance, it would seem that one is struggling to carry his boxes, while the other only aspires to twirl to a tango tune on the ballroom floors. The seasons pass, time slips like sand through the fingers but Pierre, at the turning point of his life, realizes that everything is about to change.
And for kids there is a play “A toy for Christmas” on stage of Theatre des Muses on Saturday 25 November at 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. and Sunday 26 November at 11:00 a.m. and 2:15 p.m.
During this holiday season, everyone is getting down to Christmas preparations with joy and good humor. Well… everyone except Rodolphe, owner of a toy store, for whom the mere mention of this holiday makes his hair stand on end. However, this year, a strange visit will give him a Christmas he won’t soon forget…
